England still in Gurney's sights
Nottinghamshire left armer Harry Gurney is hoping his displays with Melbourne Renegades will get him an England recall.
Gurney was outstanding in the shortest format of the game Down Under as the Renegades walked off with the top prize but he will be hoping England have taken note.
The 32-year-old hasn't played for his country since December 2014 but with a T20 World Cup looming next year, he believes he has what it takes to force his way back into the national selectors' thinking.
He said: "There's a T20 World Cup coming up in Australia in 2020 and I would be lying if I said it hadn't crossed my mind.
"I want to be playing as much T20 cricket as I possibly can and if the call-up comes then that would be amazing. But it's not at the front of my mind at the moment.
"I've got a foot in the door in the world of franchise cricket and I really want to try to nail that now over the next couple of years. I'll have to see where that takes me.
"I'm looking forward to everything that's coming my way. It's really exciting."
